Enfield? council are having a purge on spitting in public spaces. This will not apparently apply to football teams.


Spitting by football players seems to me to be a modern thing - don't recollect Bobby Charlton doing it. I didn't when I played - wasn't anything like as good as most modern players, but I got just as exhausted . I noticed one very famous player spitting as the players came out - and holding the hand of a little one at the same time.,


On a slightly different theme - has anyone ever seen a footballer carrying a hanky?


Happy days


And just how many holes are there in a football net.

best average answer is around 3,427 but it does depend on the particular grounds keeper as there are no regulations for them.

Only when posing for publicity pictures,speaking to the press or appearing in court :wink:

Spitting is disgusting and should be banned Harry.


Re: the footy well sadly my other half always seem to matches on the tv and it really turns my stomach everytime I see the players spitting (either through their mouths or their noses) and it seems the norm. :evil:


I've noticed it in a few rugby matches too although not as much as in footy thankfully but I'd walk off any pitch if I thought I was going to have to slide, head a ball, takcle or touch a player, be tackled by another, or even be in in contact with any of those things if they had been in contact with someone elses 'snot' and 'gob' (sorry) :oops:


Surely there must be some health implications in having to be subjected to that.:evil:


I even saw one of the players do it in the tennis final the other week.


There is just no need for it and it's disgusting but I guess it would be hard for them to pull a tissue out of their shorts but they could try or maybe just swallow it. <oooh.. suddenly feeling queezy there>


People who do it on the street have no excuse whatsoever and should be tasered in their tender parts....simples
